Alina's Fun Fruit Bath Session...
Summer is coming to an end and I am so happy I made time for my daughters fruit bath session. My daughter absolutely loved this! I recommend this session for ages 7 months to 1 year. I know this is a small gap but as long as you have a stable and unsupported sitter you may be able to have this session at 6 months of age. If you decide to have this type of session for your child, definitely make sure your child does not have any allergies to the fruit. I am sure allergies for the fruit I used is very rare, but it is better to be safe than sorry!
Here are some tips if you are planning your own fruit bath session. I ordered the tub off Amazon, this size is a 15 gallon tub. My 5 year old fit in it perfectly if it helps to reference that for size. This tub was around $35 and I loved the dull color and texture. I collected 2.5 gallon water jugs over time and used about 7.5 gallons for this session. When you do refill, just remember to pack warm water for your child so they can actually enjoy their bath.
The night before I pre-sliced the fruit and packaged it up in plastic containers. I also found a location where I was able to park right next to the set up so that helped out tremendously. If you can't park near the photo spot take a wagon to haul the materials. I want to emphasize the importance of your location. This spot had freshly cut grass and was not near any body of water so it had very little bugs flying around. This session took me about an hour to prepare, shoot, and clean up. My daughter had just woke up from her nap so she was in a perfect mood and after all of the preparation...the end result was all worth it.
If you would like to book a fruit bath session with me, just visit my contact page and mention it in the message section. This session is included with my "portrait package" with your choice of 2-3 fruits. Hope everyone enjoys their last bit of summer. Who else is ready for fall?!
Have a beautiful day,
